Sanook reported that the main stadium at the "Chiang Mai 700 Years" complex in Mae Rim is in urgent need of repair. 

 

The complex was built just 24 years ago for the 18th SEA Games hosted in the northern Thai city amid much fanfare. 

 

But now the main stadium pitch is a tangle of weeds and sand and the stands and walkways are in urgent need of repair. 

 

But good news was on the way. 

 

Regional sports representative Noppadol Kerngburi said that 165 million baht had been allocated to repair the 25,000 seater stadium in Don Kaew sub-district. It is the biggest such facility in the province. 

 

Over the next two months a plan will be formulated for what renovations need to be done with the stadium expected to be fully repaired five months after that.
